    These are the easiest jobs in the world. You piss a load of hedge fund money up the wall and when it's your time you jump out to a new company. Rinse and repeat.

        I'm just offering suggestions for how DAZN USA could improve.

        You don't know who Oscar has developed? Are you even a boxing fan? Try almost of all PBC's current roster for starters.

        Warrington and Kelly are just the latest in a long line of Brits that have gotten exposed when they step up to the world level. It isn't the first time and it certainly won't be the last.
        You're just offering your usual toxicity with wanting Hearn to be removed due to psycho nationalism and nothing more.

        Oscar should be main promoter of DAZN because of the past, and not the present and future? What has Oscar got NOW that makes you think he should be main promoter? Who has he developed that doesn't have mass corruption at play?

        Warrington was stepping up to world level when he fought Mauricio Lara? You're an idiot. Lara wasn't world level. Frampton, Selby and Galahad were though. Warrington lost due to being out for 16 months and looking like shlt from the off. He would have dominated and stopped Lara had he been at his best. Only your spite and extremism would suggest otherwise. Same with Kelly. In fact, look at all our losses over the past 10-15 years and look at the context to see why British fighters lost. How many losses were straight without them being in a bad place or something else going on? Try it.

        You're the opposite. You lose even when the deck is stacked and you've cherry picked.

        Browne against a shot Pascal.
        Thurman against a finished Manny.
        Hurd against a cherry pick in J Rock.
        J Rock against a cherry pick in Rosario.
        Charlo against a finished Korobov at a few days notice.
        Charlo against a cherry pick in Harrison.
        Wilder against a badly in shape Fury.
        Porter against Ugas.
        Kownacki against a shot Helenius.

        When the American stepped up...

        Russell lost against the only world level fighter he fought in Loma. Who wasn't even proven to be world level at the time. Russell now just ducks everyone while talking. Typical American.

        Spence lost the first time he fought a fighter who was fresh and his own size in Porter.

        Thurman lost to Porter and Manny. His only win is against Garcia, who doesn't have any wins at Welter. In fact, Garcia doesn't have any wins other than Khan many moons ago. They've all been robberies. He even had close fights with shot fighters like Judah. You know Khan, the guy who beat Peterson but was ripped off by the crooked ref and judges? You remember that night? Then the week before the rematch, it all got called off because Peterson failed a drug test. Peterson was also of PED's in the first fight. Khan going into the Garcia fight with all that hanging over him was the reason for his defeat. Then in true American style, Garcia and his father refuse a rematch with Khan. They wouldn't give him the opportunity Khan gave them. Lopez is on that train as we speak. You know Lopez? The guy who didn't beat Loma but actually drew with him but got those typical score cards you dish out to overseas fighters over there?

        The first time Wilder stepped up he was slaughtered by Fury.

        The first time Porter faced a true Welter in Brook he was beaten.

        The first time Hunter stepped up he was beaten by Usyk.

        The first time Tabiti stepped up he was beaten by Dorticos.

        The first time Broner stepped up he was beaten by Maidana. He then lost to everyone that mattered.

        The first time Lacy stepped up he lost to Calzaghe.

        The Charlo's haven't really stepped up but have a handful of losses already. Forget robberies. They step up to true world level, they're getting levelled.

        The first time Ruiz stepped up he was beaten by Parker.

        Miller didn't step up but already had a gift draw against a bum.

        The first time Jacobs stepped up he was beaten by Pirog.

        The first time Quillen stepped up he was beaten by Lee and Jacobs.

        The first time Cruz stepped up he was beaten by Frampton.

        The first time Prograis stepped up he was beaten by Taylor.

        The first time Breazele stepped up he was beaten by AJ.

        The first time Warren stepped up he was beaten by Payano. Then got the robbery in the rematch. He then loses again to Zhanat. Then Oubaali.

        The first time Hooker stepped up he was beaten by Perez but got a gift draw.

        Ramirez when stepping up to Zepeda lost but got a gift. The same with Postal.

        The first time Martin stepped up he was beaten by AJ.

        The first time both Dirrells stepped up they were beaten by Froch and Bika. Bika was ripped off with the draw though.

        Kirkland didn't have to step up before he was beaten.

        Monroe Jr was beaten the first time he stepped up with Golovkin. Then beaten by Saunders.

        Lubin was beaten the first time he stepped up with Charlo. Same with J rock.

        The first time Trout stepped up he was beaten by Canelo.

        The first time Collazo stepped up he was beaten by Hatton.

        The first time Barrios stepped up he was beaten by Akhmedov but got the robbery.

        The first time Easter stepped up he was beaten by Commey. Then by Shafikov but got robberies in both. Then was beaten by Mikey.

        The first time Ortiz stepped up he was beaten by Maidana.

        The first time Bey stepped up he was beaten by Vazquez but got the robbery.

        The first time Jo Jo Diaz stepped up he was beaten by Russell.

        The first time herring stepped up he was beaten by Shafikov.

        The first time Magdeleno stepped up he was beaten by Dogboe.

        The first time Roman stepped up he was beaten by Doheny but got a gift. He's then beaten the next time he steps up against Akhma.

        And these are the ones off the top of my head. Imagine how many i would find if i really delved deep? That's how pathetic you guys are. All the corruption and robberies, all the ducking you do. Every one of your fighters today is ducking at least one other fighter. The stacked decks you get because you carefully choose your opponents and never fight the best at their best to guarantee victory. And even then you still don't win a lot of the time like i've said. Your collective resumes are trash. You have 5 times our size, but can't produce an equal win list on a like for like basis. Most of your fighters don't even have a single good win on their resume. They don't even fight anybody. They just run their mouth and then run away.

        You know what happens if our fighters are at their best. Even at this point in time and them being at their worst we still have the best collective resume in world boxing. With you stacking the deck as much as you do and carefully choosing your opponents, this is still you at your best. History tells the story of what happens when we fight each other at our best. It also tells the story when you fight fighters from other nations when they're at their best too. Now stay in your place and don't get above your station again or i'll man handle you again.

          Oscar understands the market much better than Eddie Hearn and knows how to develop fighters.
          This & do more deals with unaffiliated American promoters in general. They should have some sorta Shobox type situation where they let more folks on the platform with compelling prospect fights. They have definitely given Eddie too much to do thats for sure. And Eddie specifically has done poorly with his US shows overall. I suspect he'd either be smarter out of the gate or learn the US game by now & he clearly hasn't & didn't.

              Damn Kevin Mayer sounds like an idiot. He was head of DisneyPlus and gave up the job to be CEO of TikTok for like a month. Then he backed out, thinking it was dead. And now he signs up for this train wreck.

                It’s not like they don’t have the opportunity now, Eddie is putting more frequent fights in but the intention of dazn is very much they compliment each other. Eddie is just more outspoken nd that’s really his job as a promoter.

                  Oscar should be the main promoter of DAZN USA because of his proven track record. He has developed fighters and put on attractive matchups his entire career, even after PBC ran off with all his fighters.

                  It's just the smart move business-wise if DAZN USA wants to be more successful.

                  Who does he have now? Do Ryan Garcia and Vergil Ortiz ring a bell.

                  Like I said, do you even follow boxing? Or are you stuck in your little domestic/provincial mentality?

                      Skipper is the genius who nixed a fight between Canelo Alvarez and Andrade when Canelo wanted to negotiate a fight with him. He also put the Kabosh on Alvarez fighting any other champion other than Kovalev. This included Charlo, Plant, Benavides, and a whole raft of other good fighters. His genius idea was that Canelo had to fight "premium" fighters defined by him as Golovkin, Oscar De La Hoya, and a couple of MMA types. I can see why Skipper was relieved of any management duties by the parent company of DAZN. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
